‘Ted Lasso’ Scores First Two Emmys For Debut Season At Creative Arts Ceremony
Ted Lasso kicked off its first Emmys season with a strong showing at the first night of the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, as the Apple TV+ comedy scored its first pair of Emmy Awards. The series stars Jason Sudeikis, who developed the series with Bill Lawrence based on the popular character Sudeikis played in NBC Sports videos several years ago, stars as Lasso, an American football coach who tries to replicate his success in the UK with a much rounder ball.
The pandemic has changed so many things about how we all live, perhaps most immediately what we wear: on our feet, around our waists, on ourand especially on our lips, which are often covered by masks.
I am a longtimelover. In my medicine cabinet there are no fewer than 25 lipsticks of various shades of red. Some find their colour and stick to it. I think of lipsticks the way others think of shoes: there are different for different occasions and different times of day.
My lipsticks are all lined up neatly according to brand (Pat McGrath, Nars, Chanel, Mac) and subdivided into colours. True Red. Blue Red. Coral. I can tell you the difference between Mac Ruby Woo and Russian Red. I invest.
9 Burning Questions That Will Be Answered at the 2021 Emmy Awards
Here are nine burning questions about the 2021 Emmy Awards. We’ll have answers when the awards are presented on Sunday.The other nominees for outstanding variety special (live) are The Oscars (ABC), The Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show Starring The Weeknd (CBS), StephenColbert’s Election Night 2020: Democracy’s Last Stand Building Back America Great Again Better 2020 (Showtime) and Celebrating America – An Inauguration Night Special (multiple platforms).
During the early months of the pandemic, which I spent mostly in my sweats, I would sometimes open the cabinet and look at those glossy tubes and whisper, “One day you will ride again.” (I was the only person in my apartment.) In other words, I would ride again. As the months wore on, though, I began to wonder if this would be the case. Life seemed very far away. You could either have a mask or you could have a lip. Because I am a responsible citizen, I chose the former.
Many others did too, it seems. During the economic downturn after the 11 September 2001, attacks, Leonard Lauder coined the term “lipstick index”. His belief was that the worse the economy is, the more lipstick women are purchasing; we buy the small things when the big things are out of reach. The pandemic upended this. As the economy struggled in 2020, lipstick sales also plummeted.
How to Stream the 2021 Emmys Live
Last year's awards season was anything but normal, thanks to the pandemic. And this year's Emmys, at least, isn't going to be totally normal either — though it will be more normal than last year's show, which took place mostly by video conference. Now the Emmys are back in the Microsoft Theater, with limited attendance, so that's something. The ceremony will begin at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on CBS, and it'll be hosted by Cedric the Entertainer. Perhaps the biggest development for viewers this year will be the return of the red carpet before the Emmys ceremony itself, though CBS isn't slated to have its own red carpet show.
And then, a vaccine! Followed by updated guidelines that masks were no longer mandatory. Hello again, lips?
Lips aside, there was another question a lot of us were asking ourselves this past spring as we emerged: who am I now? We were boldly pulling our masks down, ready to once again exist in the world — or at least try to figure out how to exist.
What parts of our old style had remained and, of those, which had we only been putting on out of a sense of obligation, which perhaps the pandemic had now freed us from? Were we people who had let all the grey come in? Had a year of staring at our faces up close resulted in reassessing the advantages of fillers? Was anyone actually contemplating shoving their feet back into heels?
Here’s what Maybelline’s Super Stay means: once you put it on, it might never come off, certainly not with soap and water
And finally: lip or no lip?
On that first day, when I was able to leave with a mask on my upper arm instead of my face, I automatically reached for my tried-and-true Nars Jungle Red, almost without thinking. For the first time in more than a year I felt like myself again. I felt happy. The pandemic had stripped me of many things (touch, first and foremost) but not, it turned out, my devotion to lipstick. Again I was part of a trend. According to numbers released in May, the second the masks came off, lipstick sales shot right back up, to the tune of 80% from the year before, according to CNN Business.
Conan O’Brien Gets Big Laughs At The Emmys With Excited Reaction To Television Academy Chairman
The Emmys got a hilarious interruption from Conan O’Brien. During Sunday night’s awards show, the former late-night host got big laughs in the room and from viewers at home without even appearing on-stage.

“Our beauty regimens are one of the easiest ways to access self-care,” says the makeup artist Molly Stern, “and lipstick in particular is a hole-in-one. It takes just a few minutes to apply, and it has instant power to remind us we matter.”
This happy reunion was to be temporary. Even before the delta variant of the virus revived stricter mask mandates, I was still required to wear one here and there; subway rides, for instance.
And while my Chanel Gabrielle has stood loyally by me for endless activities, it was not made for mask life. I would apply, put on my mask and a short time later look like I’d been in a teenage make-out session, lipstick everywhere but my lips. Some rethinking was going to be necessary. I was going to have to commit.
Enter the long-lasting lipstick, many of which, after numerous trips down makeup aisles, I learned the hard way are not mask-lasting.
There are, however, a few lipsticks that live up to, or rather, stand up to, our times.
If you are a red lipstick person, the first will not come as a shock. Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day in Beso has been around for more than a decade and has a devoted following that includes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It is an intense red. When you put this on, you really have to mean it.
Emmys 2021: Facts & Feats
history was made during the three-hour show. Here are 10 of the most notable Emmy facts and feats. RuPaul became the person of color with the most career Emmys. He won his 11th Emmy for outstanding competition program as an executive producer of RuPaul’s Drag Race (VH1). RuPaul pulled ahead of Donald A. Morgan, a cinematographer and lighting director, who has won 10 Emmys.
The second is Fenty’s Stunna Lip Pain Longwear Fluid Lip Colour. I have it in Uncensored. The key with this one is to blot it immediately after applying: the thinner the layer, the longer it will last (fortunately, a little goes a long way).
The third is Maybelline’s Super Stay Matte Ink. I have it in Dancer. If there is a lipstick for our masked times, this is it.
Here’s what Super Stay means in this context: once you put it on, it might never come off, certainly not with soap and water, let alone on a mask. (Pro tip: you will need to use an oil-based makeup remover; coconut oil will do.)
After applying it for the first time in 2019, I was still wearing it the next morning. It promptly went into the corner of the medicine cabinet and stayed there. There was such a thing as too much lipstick. But it came back out this summer and has since been the only one that’s stayed out.
We now know there is no swift, seamless returning to our old lives. At best, all we get to do now is make small decisions about what we can take with us and how to make it fit into this messy uncertain new world. The lipstick remains (literally in this case).
These days mask removal feels like a scene from some sort of secret identity superhero film. Here is me, the 2021 version. And now here is me, and my lips, thriving as best we can.
